PRIMARY AND SECONDARY LYMPHEDEMA CARE

Lymph is body fluid that is filtered from blood vessels to tissue. From tissue, lymph is transported by lymph vessels to lymph nodes and further via the lymphatic system back to venous circulation. If the lymphatic system is not functioning properly, lymph is unable to move forward and the tissue starts to swell with fluid. The swelling caused by the problems in the lymphatic system is known as a disease called lymphedema.

Lymphedema developed at birth is known as primary lymphedema. The lymph carrying capacity can also be diminished after surgeries, radiotherapy, trauma or infection. This is called secondary lymphedema. For example, in cancer surgeries the lymph nodes close to the tumor area are often either removed or radiated. The removed or damaged lymph nodes might predispose the body to lymphatic swelling.

PREOP AND POSTOP SWELLING, SCARS

Swelling is common in orthopedic patients. Swelling can occur before surgery caused by trauma or after surgery caused by the operation. Compression pain after an injury or operation can be relieved by reducing swelling by improving lymphatic circulation.

All invasive operations produce scar tissue. Reparation and regeneration of scar tissue is dependent on tissue metabolism, oxidation and functionality. Older scars might build up adhesions to other tissue layers and these can partially inflict pain, swelling and reduced functionality of the joint. Scar tissue build up can lower muscle performance, it stresses tendons and can entrap nerves. When tearing a muscle, ligament or tendon the body creates scar tissue to repair and “glue“ the torn parts together. Oxygen deprivation can also cause scarring in soft tissue.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Neural tissue, comprised of nerve fibers and the structures immediately surrounding them, is closely connected to muscles, lymph vessels and fascial structures. Under normal conditions neural tissue can move freely between muscles, bones and connective tissue such as fascial tissue layers.

Normal movement of nerve tissue may become obstructed from restricted joint mobility or muscle tightness, which can cause radiating pain. If a nerve is constantly compressed or stretched, the transportation of nutrients inside is restricted. This causes increased secretion of inflammation mediators.

Company details

LymphaTouch Inc. is a pioneering Finnish healthcare technology company developing a treatment device based on negative pressure. The LymphaTouch® device was originally developed in 2005 as a tool for physiotherapy and rehabilitation professionals to support lymphedema treatment.

Our LymphaTouch® device, previously also known as PhysioTouch®, has been successfully used in physiotherapy, lymph therapy and rehabilitation. The main applications are treating swelling and edema,  but also promoting faster recovery for patients. LymphaTouch® is used worldwide.

The goal of LymphaTouch® is to promote treatment that is based on scientific evidence benefiting patients, caregivers and the healthcare community. LymphaTouch® creates innovative therapeutic solutions to improve patients' lives. LymphaTouch® aims to be the leading manufacturer of professional therapeutic devices for oncology, orthopaedic, sports, neurology and MSD.

LymphaTouch® negative pressure treatment can be applied to several treatment areas, including lymphedema, pre- and postoperative swelling and scarring, fascial tightness, muscle maintenance, active recovery, pain management and improving joint functionality.

The device is designed to support lymphatic drainage. The negative pressure generated by the device helps improve lymphatic circulation in the treated area. In addition to negative pressure, LymphaTouch® has a mechanical high frequency vibration feature.

The results of LymphaTouch® therapy can be assessed after treatment by analyzing the patient’s VAS pain ratings and measuring changes in the circumference and range of motion of the treated limb.

LymphaTouch® is designed for professional use.

LymphaTouch® negative pressure treatment can be applied to several treatment areas, including lymphedema, pre- and postoperative swelling and scarring, fascial tightness, muscle maintenance, active recovery, pain management and improving joint functionality.

According to clinical studies, LymphaTouch® therapy is even three times more effective than manual lymphatic therapy.
